Chesapeake Bay

Trevor drove down to Southern Maryland to see the Chesapeake Bay.

First he stopped at a restaurant on the Patuxent River to have some tasty crabcakes!

Then he went to Calvert Cliffs State Park. It is a two mile walk from the parking lot to the shore. This little creek followed along the path before merging into a large swamp.

There were lots of fallen trees from Hurricane Irene. Luckily the path had already been cleared.

Finally at the shore! Calvert Cliffs are unusual along the Bay, they are full of fossils and sharks teeth that crumble into the water and wash back up on shore. Lots of people go to the beach to sift through the sand for fossils. The opposite shore (the Eastern Shore of Maryland) is barely visible.
